V and I have been unpacking a bit today and I have only just started pulling together the living room. Let these pictures give you the impression that I have my stuff together - that'd be cool. Yeah.
That's why you're only seeing bits and pieces. And also because I was too lazy to change my camera lens.
I have no idea if brown and blue are on their way out, but I love these colors together.
I got this chair at Target. I love this chair. It's small, it fits the room, and it's pretty without being too pretty. At least I think so - because the flowers are large and not all frilly and pink. Right? R will appreciate that.
He's a little worried about the flower chair (he hasn't seen it in person yet - he's on his way home now).
I worry about dirty kid feet on my beautiful chair. Oh how I worry!
And here's a lamp. I got this lamp at a farmer's market in 1999 or 2000. It's by Autonomy Design. I couldn't find anything out about them online. Maybe they don't exist anymore. Anyway, I still love it. It gives off a nice homey glow at night.
V can't keep her hands off this lamp (surely that'll stop in a few days). In this picture, I had just told her that the lamp was not a toy and she was saying, "Yes! The lamp IS a toy!" Of course as soon as the words came out of my mouth, I felt like somebody's mother. Which of course I am.
The sofa. Got that one at Sam's Club. We needed an affordable sleeper sofa, in case anyone ever decides to come stay with us. Hopefully they will. The sofa is affordable and looks nice. The shipping was insanely expensive, they were almost 3 hours late delivering it (a local company, not Sam's), and one of the guys left a box cutter in the yard for my almost-3-yo to find. V saying, "What's this mama?!" with a box cutter in her hand just about stopped my heart. Of course he didn't mean to leave it. Ok, moving on...
I love the feet on this sofa. These are my kind of sofa feet.
So, what do you think? It's fun being an adult with grown up furniture. Now I just need a rug (anyone with any suggestions on what color/pattern rug, please let me know. Brown/blue? Something else? I'm so clueless! I can't do jute or anything like that - I'm terribly allergic.) and some curtains, and I'd like some of those picture ledge shelf thingies like I see in the Pottery Barn catalog.
By the time I get done with this place, it'll be time to move!
